/var/www/html/ permissions and users
I've set up a home http server on my old laptop - Centos 5.2. I'm using joomla for content management. My question is what permission should I set for the files/folders in my joomla directory. I mean I read that for files 644 and directories 755 should by enough. Also, who should own all those files/directories - shall I keep them as owned as root or shall I create a separate user for administering the website/apache and chown them to the new user?
thanks in advance
